Survival Craft Inspectorate (SCI) – which provides emergency marine evacuation systems – has signed a new distributor agreement with Hong Kong-based SeaSafe Marine.
Aberdeen-based SCI specialises in the manufacture, inspection, testing and servicing of lifeboats, fast rescue craft, release mechanisms, winches and davits for the global merchant shipping, cruise and oil and gas sectors.
Survival Craft Inspectorate’s headquarters and manufacturing base is at Findon, just outside Aberdeen. The company also has additional UK operations in Great Yarmouth and at Stonehaven, where its Marine Training Academy is based.
Under the agreement SeaSafe Marine will have sales and installation rights for SCI’s SafeLaunch lifeboat release and retrieval systems. Jos Lems, SCI’s head of global sales, said: “This latest agreement once again broadens the geographical reach of Safelaunch in the Asian market.”
Andrew Lemmis, Managing Director SeaSafe Marine, said: “The addition of Safelaunch, which complies with the latest industry regulations, will strengthen our position in the market. Safelaunch is an excellent product and we have the experienced team to deliver this highly-regarded solution to our clients.”
